Casket Commercial

a couple times in the past week i've seen a commercial for caskets. that is just plain odd to me. i would think casket sales to the general public would be through a funeral home, but evidently there are casket stores out there. on top of this the towards the end of the commercial the spokesman mentioned a full warranty that each casket has! what is the point of this? you buy a casket and you put it in the ground. what the hell do you need a warranty for? personally i'm not a big fan of putting fancy wood or metal boxes in the ground. to me that's polluting the environment. recently while watching the tv show prison break i heard of a biodegradable casket that is used for a new type of funeral called an ecological funeral.

if you want to get technical about it, in your standard cemetary the casket goes inside a cement vault. not directly into the ground anyway. while it's probably not helping the environment, it shouldn't hurt, either.

but i'm sure there are ecological benefits to the biodegradable casket. personally, that whole idea freaks me out.

Interesting, but this whole warranty business is ridiculous.
